strategies celebrate 10 years anniversary

The close of the third quarter marked the 10th anniversary of Fort Washington’s Focused Equity and Full Discretion Fixed Income strategies. 

Focused Equity

  • Jamie Wilhelm, Managing Director, Head of Public Equities, developed the Focused Equity strategy and has been lead Portfolio Manager since the strategy’s inception.
  • The strategy emphasizes valuation and barriers to entry in its process and the link between the two. We believe this approach is unique within the industry and has allowed the strategy to find compelling investment opportunities in a variety of market conditions.
